Coaching Math Teachers

Week of 4/27 - 5/1


We all believe in high-quality education, and motivating scholars to reach their academic goals. As we continue to do so, I will be coming into your classroom this week to observe your instruction. The purpose is to find areas where I can support you that will lead students to improve their academic achievement.

Depending on your level of comfort, I would like to use TORSH. This will allow you to review and reply to effective feedback that is evidence-based, at the comfort of your house :D

Please answer the form below regarding your level of comfort with TORSH:

Right after the observation, you will receive Quick Feedback that it may take up to 3 minutes.

If TORSH is used, I will give you feedback through time-stamped notes, and I am going to ask you to reply to these as a reflection.

If you do not wish for TORSH to be used, we will meet face-to-face either during your planning period the following day.

Even If TORSH is used, there may be sometimes that we need to sit down face-to-face to have richer conversations on how to continue impacting our scholar's academic achievement.

With either of both approaches, I will follow the framework of 6 Steps to Effective Feedback from Leverage Leadership by Paul Bambrick Santoyo. Below you will find a link to the framework, and a video with an explanation of the framework.

In the TORSH Exemplars Library, under the Channel "6 Steps to Effective feedback" you will find videos with the framework in action. I invite you to watch the video that I recorded giving Effective Feedback to Mrs. Heredia (thank you for giving me permissions to share!!!), which shows the 6 steps to Effective Feedback.

I look forward to see you, and continue challenging each other to improve ourselves and better serve our scholars. Which will lead to their academic success!

If you have any question, please let me know.
